I am now almost three months since I ordered my Firecraker Red JLU Rubicon on 4/20. It went rather quickly through the build, about three and a half weeks (5/25) then sat in JB status waiting on MOPAR hard top headliners until last Friday (7/6). I am now waiting on shipping to be arranged; its still in Toledo. I’m ready for it to get here and begin enjoying my new Rubicon.


Edit Update: Today is 14 weeks since I ordered and I just got a call from my dealership this morning. My Rubicon made it to the railyard in KC and has off loaded. Just has to get on a truck for the five hour drive to Northwest Arkansas. I should pick it up sometime next week. Really excited that its almost here.

By the way, I understand that some of the delay was the tie down rails .... They were worth the wait!

Are there any Canadians on here? It seems that tracking your build isn't so simple from Canada. Any advice/insight? I ordered my hella yella 2door sport on July 3rd and still don't have a VIN.
Ottawa here. Ordered an almost loaded JLUR April 25, got the VON that day but still don't have a VIN. FCA will not build it because I have the LED group and there are supposedly still issues with that (amongst God knows what else). Two weeks from now I will cancel and perhaps take my chances on a 2019. If Trump follows through with his auto tarrifs then I will not re-order.

Ordered 6/7/18
Delivered to dealer 7/5/18, and picked up 7/6/18.
2dr Sport S, Mojito!, 6-speed, tech, pst, limited slip.
Dealer is approximately 175 miles N of Toledo.
Already installed Mopar running boards, Curt hitch & wiring.
That’s great Carl! Pretty fast!

My dealer has been great about getting me updates without asking, so I didn’t bother with the jeepgarage even though it would be more detailed. Just found out today that it’s built and in JB status, presumably to install the hardtop headliners. So I should be soon. Maybe 10 days or less :like:

2018 jl unlimited rubicon
Canadian order here. Ordered may 14, then no VIN until 7 weeks. It was built and shipped in 1.5 weeks landing at dealer in 2 weeks from VIN. About 9 weeks so I guess that’s about the norm for a new car. It is a red jlur with almost everything..no head liner or rail system. It’s amazing! Not sure I will ever want another type of vehicle. My dogs crate fits right in the back..I am looking forward to finally being able to travel with him comfortably and have a vehicle to take us exploring.

If you don't get a VIN within days, it may mean your dealer does not have allocation. Ask for an updated Priced Order Confirmation (POC) that will have your status. If it does not have a VON or VIN, consider going to another dealer because your order has not been booked by FCA.

Once you get a VIN, and are willing to spend $25US, you can become a level 3 member of Jeepgarage.org and have your build tracked daily there. If you don't want to go that route, insist that your dealer email you an updated POC sheet once a week which contains your order status. I did both.

Awesome. Did you have a way of tracking the build from Canada? I've had a TJ for 18 years. You will never go back. Best thing I ever bought!
